Interactive Video Games are a major growth sector for the Seattle region. With approximately 350 companies in the Seattle area, we are the #1 cluster in the world for this rapidly-growing field. 170 million Americans play video games; 80% of them are adults, and the average play time for kids each day is 2.1 hours!

How can we channel this interest in video games and help educate children, empower people to develop community-based solutions to urgent social problems, and find cures for diseases?

This event will bring together leading local game innovators and internationally-recognized gaming scholar, Dr. Magy Seif El-Nasr, to talk about how to evolve the business model of interactive entertainment to benefit the greater good.
